Itron SaaS solution utilized to progress smart city goals

This week, Itron said that the City of Stockholm will be implementing Itron’s smart city software, Streetlight Vision (SLV), in order to help Stockholm progress toward its goal of becoming the world’s smartest city by 2040. Stockholm’s traffic department will use SLV to manage streetlights, improve energy efficiency and optimize system performance.

SLV is a smart city central management software application that has advanced asset management, analytics and control capabilities, according to Itron. The company said that SLV has been used by more than 500 communities, controlling more than 3 million intelligent devices worldwide.

“Through innovation, openness and connectivity we are making Stockholm more economically, ecologically and socially sustainable. Smart street lighting is a vital component of this strategy because it provides immediate energy savings, helps us achieve our sustainability goals, and lays the groundwork for our future smart city vision,” said Maria Holm, project manager of the Stockholm smart and connected lighting project.

Itai Dadon, director of smart cities and IoT at Itron, said “Delivering proven energy savings while laying a foundation for digital transformation, our intelligent streetlight management solution will enable Stockholm to unlock efficiencies with the ability to scale and enable future smart city applications from our vibrant and growing partner ecosystem.”
